Stephanie Coleman & Doug Overby

Owings, Wilson & Coleman’s government relations team offers the experience and expertise to assist our clients in navigating today’s legislative and regulatory environment. We have the experience to develop strategies to assist our clients in overcoming obstacles, taking advantage of opportunities, and educating policymakers.

Our team is at home in the legislative arena, possessing firsthand knowledge of the legislative process, including how both the state House and Senate conduct business through the committee system and bring matters to the floor of each chamber. We monitor legislation so we can alert our clients to new developments, and we are able to direct our clients’ lobbying efforts when and where needed.

In addition to monitoring statutory and regulatory changes, our legislative work includes drafting and reviewing legislation and advising our clients regarding the effect of pending legislation on them and their operations. Utilizing a combination of political acumen from service in the legislative arena and legal know-how, we can assist our clients in formulating an appropriate strategy and response to regulatory compliance and enforcement issues.
